I have had mythtv running for a while and the channels never populated
themselves. It just said there is no channel listings until whenever so
i repopulated them with mythfilldatabase.
When i go into the program guide on mythtv some channels look like they
are setup fine. For example Channel 4 is shown as "4 1081" and has a
channel listing. However if i select that channel it wont change channel
but i get "Paremeter Out Of Range" if i Alt-Tab and have a look.
I can only change channels to the ones that were scanned in by myth and
have no listings against them.
How do i match up the xmltvid with my channels? Is there a nice howto
somewhere i have missed?
